“Halloween Ghost Tour”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

We went here for a Haunted Mansion tour. Unfortunately the local Fire Blue Lighter inspector gave them a hard time so they were unable to decorate as much. It was still a lot of fun!

“Holiday visit”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

We took the trolley to the estate. Along the way, we saw the Christmas lights throughout Cape May. The Estate was decorated beautifully in the Victorian style. It was a lovely evening.

“Very different!”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

The estate gives a window to Victorian times. It has been meticulously kept. The tour is given by one of the former owners in character. The rooms are so detailed and perfect you could live in there today. We went in December and the Christmas decorations were impressive as was the history of the Christmas tree and its evolution to the large tree we have today.
